Mercury Racing props are designed to maximize boat performance and handling in any application, from pleasure boating and fishing to poker runs and competition racing. Artisans handcraft each propeller to precision-tuned works of art, customized for specific boat types and performance goals. Each individual propeller is then zero balanced and measured to ensure consistent performance every single time.
Boat manufacturers have responded to angler requests for larger and more stable hulls. They have addressed that by increasing both hull depth and width. The changes have resulted with the consoles moving forward, changing the center of gravity and weight distribution. The mounting of trolling motor batteries in the front of the boat affects planing performance and bow lift as well.
The hand-crafted, stainless steel Bravo I LT props are designed to improve planing and trim response throughout the engine operating rpm range. The result? An increase in top-end speed by 1 to 1.5 mph!
